overwolf.media.replays.turnOn: max_kpbs setting does not have any effect (only the setting in the overwolf capture settings has an effect)


  1. go to overwolf capture settings and set kbps to minimum
  2. start a demo app opening the console
  3. start a game
  4. use overwolf.media.replays.turnOn({settings: {video: { max_kbps: 50000 }}},console.log)
  5. capture a clip with overwolf.media.replays.capture(5000,1,console.warn, console.log)

Result: produced clip will have a capped bitrate around 2000-4000.
Expected: produced clip will have a much higher bitrate.

As verification repeat the previous steps with changing the overwolf capture setting for bitrate. You will see that setting it higher in the overwolf settings will force the clips to have higher bitrate, but setting the max_kbps in turnOn call has no effect at all.
It will neither limit it when setting it lower than the overwolf setting, nor will it increase it when setting it higher.

Hi, and thanks for the feedback.

We will check the issue and we will update you here.



We added the bug to our backlog. Currently, there is no ETA, but I will update you here once the fix is released.


Hi @Colorfulstan,
